Italian playwright and actor Dario Fo, who won the Nobel prize for literature in 1997, has died at the age of 90, Italian media reported Thursday.

The left-winger was best known for his works "Accidental Death of an Anarchist" and "Can't Pay, Won't Pay", and stirred controversy with his 1969 work "Mistero buffo" ("Comical Mystery").
